Photo Shoot Aborted


I’ve had several people comment on always having such good photos of Sabrina to post. When asked, I share that my secrets are taking A LOT of photos (I probably only keep 25% of what I take and only post a small portion of those) and good cropping. I decided that I would take a photo for our Christmas card this morning. Sabrina is usually a semi-cooperate subject. That wasn’t the case this morning. Shall we see the best of the best?

Smiling but eyes closed and walking away from me. The only smile in the bunch.


Not an expression wishing others a season of joy.


Oh look, something shiny.


When she pulled out the pouty lip, we knew it was time to give it up. This is my favorite photo but obviously not Christmas card material. We’ll try again another day.

    Ahh yes the more mobile they get the harder it is for pictures. I took about 50 pictures of Gabbie this past Thanksgiving week and maybe 1 or 2 turned out decent. I do love the last picture though with her pouting. Adorable!

    Love how they never cooperate when you really want them too. LOL

    My son still makes this pouty mouth at 5 when he’s really upset, and I’ll admit I LOVE it. It reminds that he is still my baby.

    oh my goodness. I dunno, I think it’s card material!!!!

    I am about to throw my hands in the air and give up on getting some pics for cards. She won’t stay in one spot at all.

    Oh, MY! What an adorable pout! When Kevin pulls that one out, I just melt.

    Oh yeah I’m dreading taking the Christmas picture. I finally found an outfit – sheesh boy dress clothes suck big time.

    That Sabrina is still adorable no matter what! The pouty lip is just too much.

    All the pictures are adorable. I am looking forward to the next batch.

    You know me, I love the meltdown pictures 😉 I would probably use the pouty lip. It’s too cute! The dress is gorgeous, and of course so is Sabrina. Good effort! And I am with Starfish-boy dress clothes are terrible.

    Very cute shots. You inspired me to attempt to do the same. Im not happy with my photos from the first session so we get to do it again this weekend. This was much easier last year before she could walk!

    I have to say I have never seen this expression on her face before. I was starting to think she never made a face like this. I on the other hand seem to post quite a few of Serena crying. It’s not often she does but my posts make it seem it is a regular thing. I just thing they’re hysterical so I keep posting them. I love the last picture and love the dress too!
